"and its painful to see your kids go to the other side of the world" don't get it.. talking like a priest there, what about people who went the other way.. nothing wrong in going to India or China to work.. but I would hate to see those countries have the most semiconductor companies." HATE, why?? Lip Bu Tan: US is not the start and end of the world. They are the biggest market, don't make it sound like a war cry just yet.

Sounds like the Chinese and Indian versions of Solyndra to me. Payoffs to the connected.

"There's money to be made in chip startups," the big EDA companies are usually not much interested in startups where there isn't much money to be made. Atleast this is my experience in dealing with a major EDA company on behalf of a startup, several years back. The major cost barrier for any semi startup is the EDA tool cost. Maybe the big EDA companies should do something to address this issue first. Something like give away the tools at very low cost and collect back royalties, when any money is made.
